  • Practicality a strong selling point
  • Hugely versatile Magic Seats
  • Loads of space for rear passengers

How much space is there?

As with the conventional Honda Jazz hatchback, the Jazz Crosstar offers more room for passengers than seems possible given its relatively small outside dimensions.

This is particularly the case in the back, where there is loads of legroom for a car of this size.

Boot space and storage

Despite being a larger car, the Jazz Crosstar loses out a little compared with the hatchback, as its 298-litre boot is a touch smaller than that of the regular car. However, this is only a couple of litres down and we doubt you’ll notice the difference.

Honda Jazz Crosstar review - boot space
Boot is slightly smaller than regular Jazz, but you’ll struggle to notice.

Plus you still get the clever, multiply-folding Magic Seats. Creating up to 1,199 litres of room in the back when they’re not needed for people, these also provide the flexibility to accommodate loads that would usually be too awkward for a car of this size. On top of which, so to speak, the Crosstar comes with standard roof rails.

Interior storage includes a big box under the armrest, three smaller storage compartments in the centre tunnel, and two big eye-level cupholders built into the dashboard. The split level glovebox is carried over from the hatch too, which makes more effective use of the space on offer.

How easy is it to park?

Externally the Crosstar is larger in every dimension but not by a huge lot, so you’ll still find it easy to park and thread through narrow city streets.

Sensors and cameras are available if required.
